We will be moving to Middle Tennessee soon. Portland to be exact and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on places to camp. We have a 33ft Class "A" and enjoy the great outdoors. I don't fish. (Well I haven't in years) and have no fishing equipment. But we like to go a look around and get used to the area. We also have a handicapped daughter (22) who can't do a whole lot of walking but can walk and then rest and then walk..Any Suggestions?

LeeB, I just checked a map and man you are barely in TN. We have live in Crossville which is 100-120 miles east of you. TN has a lot of state parks and many of them have camping facilities that can handle your rig. Of course you will only be a skip and a jump from Nashville and there is a lot to do and see there if you identify at all with country music as most everything in N'ville is oriented that way. A little east of N'ville is Jackson, TN which is home to Loretta Lynn and they have a nice CG there that can also handle your rig, good luck in your relocation and welcome to the Volunteer state, Ken...

Lee,
I looked at the map and Portland is right on the or almost on the border with KY. There are lots of campgrounds in TN. To correct Ken a little, Loretta Lynn's cg is located in Hurricane Mills not Jackson TN. You would take I-40 west to exit 143, go North on route 13 to the campground. The next town North from there is Waverly where I live. Loretta's daughter Cissy runs a general store across the road from the CG entrance. Again Welcome to Tennessee.

Jim

Lot's of COE lakes in Cumberland river valley. We've only been to Defeated Creek in TN, and Fishing Creek in KY. But they are evry bit as nice a parks as the COE parks in GA. Land Between the Lakes would also be on our short list if we were closer

Hahaha Dwight we are here and loving it. We found a place in Ky about 40 miles form our front door right on the lake and made reservations for July 21st thru the 24th. It is at Baileys Point on Barren River Lake.. I have also found some camp grounds at Old Hickory Lake here in Tn... Dwight ol buddy I sure miss our California camping buddies but I am sure I will find some here too......
